An expressive ladylike voice for a warm poetic narrative about school days in 19th century Europe. Cori Samuel even pronounces the word 'diamond' with elegant fullness! What a treat to listen to this in bed at night! Thank you, Cori.
We know E Nesbit as author of 'The Railway Children', 'Five Children and It' and many other children's classics. This is her memoir of childhood, wonderfully read by Cori Samuel. It's one of the delights of the LibriVox project that volunteers find and record little gems like this, that would otherwise go unnoticed. Thank you, Cori!
